KCCA has banned boda boda stages around government offices in Kampala with immediate effect.
The move follows a directive issued by the security Minister, Jim Muhwezi, towards banning of stages on some roads in Kampala City especially those around government offices such as Parliamentary Avenue, Apollo Kaggwa Road, Colville Street, Nile Avenue, the Ministry of Finance, and Office of the President.
KCCA spokesperson, Simon Kasyate confirmed the development, saying the Security Minister passed the directive to the authority through the minister for Kampala Capital City Minsa Kabanda to commence the implementation of closing Boda Boda stages in some parts of the country especially those along government offices over security concerns.
Boda Boda stages have also been banned from places near banks, embassies, schools and transformers among others. ENDS
